      fuel inj    newman cams have the fuel pump lobe..they do a schrick copy if you ask them 
    • Saint Jimi
      Is that going in with a mechanical fuel pump? I've heard conflicting opinions regarding whether you can still buy uprated cams that have the fuel pump lobe or not.

      Think you found the problem?   Good luck with hot,  wet compression test - will probably go up by 10 to 20 psi and may even out.

      It was water below. Siphoned off the petrol from above. Poured it back in the tank. No hiss when opened the petrol cap.   Think some dirt must have been in the tube from tank to filter and some water in the tank from filler neck pinholes before repair . Even inverted tank does not drain completely because pick up tubes and breather tubes and fill neck tube all protrude inside. Didn't want to remove level sender as would need new o-ring and the white plastic looks like it may be too brittle to open by unscrewing with crossed screwdrivers.   Siphoned the hose from pump to carbs, siphoned both float bowls , replaced both carb mounted banjo inlet filters which had caught some very small black crud. Pipe rubber? Don't think it any lumps can have entered the carbs. Maybe very fine silt.   Still lean, so cleaned the vacuum take off tubes, and lastly the 4 mixture screws, which were a bit grubby, and blasted those  with carb cleaner and keyboard duster spray. Must be the smallest hole with strongest suction when close the throttle.   Think that has done it. Set mixture using the AFR gauge to around 14.9. Need to reset the mixture properly with engine fully warmed using vac gauges and then drive 10+ miles. But it sounds far better at low speed pickup.

      Is it? So there's no reason to worry? I wonder how come I didn't hear this noise in the first 3 years with the car... The local dealer said it might be the famous faulty chain and it needs to be replaced..
